Our clients had just completed a complete interior remodel of this lake home in West Bend, Wisconsin when they contacted us. Our conceptual landscape design was a master plan for the entire property. In the front yard, the existing front walk was failing so we designed a new front entry of bluestone with a lannon stone border. All new plantings of long blooming perennials, flowering shrubs and ornamental trees make up the plant palette.
The center of the circle driveway was overgrown with many invasive volunteer trees, so our design included removing the invasive trees and incorporating new native shade and understory trees. Native flowering shrubs were also added to the mix .
For the backyard portion of the design, the new patio is an important element with its view to the lake. Paving matches the front walk with full range bluestone and a lannon stone border. The plantings carryover from the front yard with a mix of perennials and flowering shrubs along with boxwood for evergreens. A bluestone fire pit patio was designed for the lakeshore, offering the family a place to hang out after a fun day on the water. Low voltage landscape lighting makes up the balance of the landscape design.
